The next day we went for breakfast at the motel not realising we had gone through a time change once we crossed over to Texas, they are an hour ahead! Oops, luckily the lady still gave us some food so we were happy. We got chatting to a family in the breakfast room about our travels and how we came to be in Texas. We asked them about themselves and later discovered a terrible tragedy brought them to Amarillo. They explained that one of their family members, the guys niece had decided to move to Texas from California to start a new life with her family. The car was packed and they headed off for the long drive. Along the way something fell from the car so they pulled over on the motorway to pick it up. A woman driving behind them some how ploughed into the back of the car pinning the young mother to the car. They explained that this happened yesterday and since then the 37 year old had both her legs amputated
After breakfast we needed a pick me up so went to a huge cowboy store that’s sells EVERYTHING cowboy!! Beyers did well here, he finally got some cowboy boots, it didn’t stop there he also got some jeans and a shirt!! All kitted out we to the mall in search of a cinema. We found one and an awesome popcorn shop, every flavour under the sun! The cinema was only $1.80 each, so so cheap! We watched ‘The Internship’ which was very light hearted and good fun. It was a rainy day so prefect for the cinema, we hit the road again to a place called Shamrock, no reason to go there just to sleep really! It is on route 66, we have tried to do as much of that as possible. We got to the check in desk for the lady to ask where we were from, I could hear she had an English accent so thought I would be precise as to where I am from, turns out her daughter was born in Hillingdon Hospital!! Small world!
